Internazionale defender Dodô compares new Head Coach Walter Mazzari with Roma trainer Rudi Garcia
Internazionale defender Dodô has compared new Head Coach Walter Mazzari with Roma trainer Rudi Garcia.
The 22 year-old, who was signed on loan from the Giallorossi in July, believes Mazzarri's extensive experience coaching in Serie A gives him the edge over his French counterpart.
“Everyone has their own way of working,” he considered to Sky Sport Italia, as reported by Football Italia. “At Roma, when I encountered Garcia he was in his first year in the Italian League and did not know the language very well.
“Mazzarri, however, is now in a second year at Inter and knows Italian football and every day there is lots of advice.
“At a management level of the squad I would say that I have found a difference.”
Dodô made four appearances for Corinthians’s first-team and was loaned out to Bahia [14 starts, one goal] before being signed by Roma in July 2012.
The left full-back - he will likely play at wing-back for Inter - was largely a reserve to Federico Balzaretti during his first year in Italy and managed just 15 appearances.
Last season, following the arrival of Garcia, he made 20 appearances, but was allowed to move on due to Ashley Cole’s arrival on a free transfer from Chelsea.
